Presented By:

Duration: 60 minutes

Webinar Summary

Rapid prototyping is most often associated with engineering and 3D printing. It's the ability to make something out of nothing, quickly, to show in a realistic way how it works in the real world. In this webinar Ray Davis of Alcon will share how he and his team used MadCap Flare to create a responsive HTML5 service manual.

Using multiple targets, they created prototypes from live projects for presentation to upper management, feasibility studies, and requirements gathering. That's the science. The art is a method of collaboration that is common to FDA inspections where one writer presents to management while another listens in and makes changes in real-time.

Learn how this way of collaborating, coupled with the versatility and speed of Flare's build process, allowed Ray and his team to:

  • Rapidly prototype a responsive HTML5 service manual,
  • Add functionality on-the-fly to address requirements,
  • Implement the “heavy lift” of behavior change,
  • And ultimately build a more robust prototype than would have been possible using a traditional site-building approach.
